beta-testers wanted

I am looking for beta-testers for my package, CleanSlate, which 
provides functions to purge variables and recover memory. 
Essentially, the main function tries to return the kernel, as closely 
as possible, to the state right after startup. You could think of it as 
an extreme elaboration on Clear["Global`"]. Why beta-testers? 
because this is slightly "dangerous" code in that it tweaks with 
things that aren't usually tweaked and it relies on relatively 
undocumented and potentially implementation-specific features. I 
have tested it on Mac and Windows (although not under v2.1), but 
I would like to test on some other platforms before I release the 
code to the general community. So, if you use a platform other 
than Mac or Windows, and would like to help me perfect this 
simple and very handy package, please respond to me directly. 
Thank you.
